Does Guincho beach get overcrowded in july/august

We are used to the meia praia beach in Lagos, which even in the height of summer, there is always plenty of space.

Would Guincho be similar

Yes, it's bigger and doesn't get crowded....

But the reason is, more than 80% of the times, the strong winds on the beach, makes you feel unconfortable ... this is the main reason why doesn't get crowded and why it's so good for windsurf and kitesurf ;)

Although, there are some small beaches nearby, where you can try when it's windy in Guincho... Crismina beach for instance, smaller but less windy.
